Need to put your laptop or monitor at eye level near your easel? This one from Amazon.com is ideal, sturdy, and under $50: Quik Lok LPH-001 Laptop Holder.
With a nod of appreciation to Brenda Hash and her studio setup for inspiring the web search for an equivalent laptop holder.
Good ideas and excellent free resources. It's great to have that little bit of extra help in trying to market our artwork. Hubspot is one of those, with today's blog furnishing links to helpful websites.
I played with PlaceIt, dropping one of my paintings into the template you see on the left. Canva might be useful in designing your website or logo, and ColorPicker's name is explanatory. Many of these are free and super easy.

Today with the explosion of potential markets, every visual artist needs tools and information for managing their careers successfully. This workshop is a very powerful seminar that will take you slowly by the hand and introduce you to all sorts of ways to make money from your creative endeavors.
This is a must seminar for those potentially successful artists as well as those just starting out and who have a fear of selling their work directly. It is ideal for those who feel their work is not strong or good enough, a failing often based on a lack of confidence. It is for those who just want to be in the studio and who, often out of a fear of rejection, will make any excuse not to make that phone call or go visit that gallery.
